For his 15th birthday in 2004, Mega Man (or Rockman, if you prefer) recieved the special treatment and had all 8 of his original games bundled up and re-released with some special extras on the Xbox, PS2, and GameCube.  Fortunately (or unfortunately) each version has unique exclusives, making no version inferior to the others (that includes you, GameCube).  If you're a hardcore Mega-Maniac and that still isn't enough, there's always Mega Man X Collection gathering up all the other titles.

Whatever you call him, the blue bomber always delivers the right technique, and should he defeat you... he will assimilate your specialty move into himself, further expanding his arsenal.  Just look at the lineup of bosses little Rockman conquered in Mega Man 2, he means business.

There are few "Mega" things that can rock as hard as Rockman himself, but Sega knew how.  Affectionately called the Mega Drive in Europe and Japan, this 16-bit system ushered Sega into the golden age of gaming in the early 90s; with an edge that showed even mighty Nintendo that the stakes were raised.

Finally, we acknowledge a collector with fairly even-spread numbers for most of his consoles.  All games in silentscythe's collection are childhood favorites, and likely get some play every once in a while.  A healthy helping of RPGs and adventure games always catches my eye, and are a welcome addition to any collection.

That's all for now.  Check out chat tonight, and tune in to channel 3...

15th anniversary in 2004? That doesn't sound right, considering Mega Man 1 came out in 1987.
 
I guess Capcom was a little late with this one.  They kinda put the "Mega Man 15th Anniversary" on a lot of stuff.  This mainly includes the Mega Man Battle Network games.  Either way, I hope they do something fun for the 20th anniversary (this December!).  Maybe Capcom will revive the project to make a portable collection since they dropped the GBA one indefinitely.
 
whoa, this game came out back in 04, I remember getting it like a week after it came out.  what are you talking about?
